When BKT arrived at Agritechina 2017, agriculture enthusiasts were delighted to see their favourite flagship BKT on display, as well as some new surprises. As well as showcasing our products, BKT delivered a football frenzy at the event with a little help from freestyle star Iya Traoré.

Hello everybody! Here we are with our live coverage from the world’s leading trade fair for Agricultural Machinery.

A space full of surprises, a place for gathering, a tire gallery dominated by a huge tractor made of Plexiglas, a dance hall for our football freestyler - all this is our booth at Agritechnica 2017 where we are presenting all our latest news and novelties to a large audience.

Ready to find out what we have in store for you? Let’s draw the curtain!

BKT tire novelties capturing Hanover

The BKT tire show starts with the brand-new FL 637 making its debut in style and capturing the public’s heart in Hanover. This novelty has been specifically developed for spreaders, trailers, and tank trucks to ensure extraordinary traction and great durability along with increased load capacity. Top flotation features, a low rolling resistance, and excellent self-cleaning properties are additional advantages making FL 637 the perfect partner for combined road-and-field transport.               

As you all know, BKT has always a few surprises in store. Dominating the scene and astonishing the audience is a huge transparent tractor made of 1500 kg of Plexiglas. This showpiece is equipped with anything less than Agrimax V-Flecto, BKT’s first tire excelling by NRO Technology (Narrow Rim Option), the new experimental standard of the European Tire and Rim Technology Organization, E.T.R.T.O. This marking allows for the use of recommended rims in standard size instead of specific rims that are necessary for VF tires of the same dimensions. Being synonymous with strength and power, Agrimax V-Flecto has a 10% longer product life-cycle compared to an equivalent standard tire. In addition, its super resistant casing and the special reinforced bead enable this tire to withstand any sort of strain and mechanical stress making it your perfect ally, no matter whether you are travelling on the road or in the fields.

Last but not least, thanks to the optimized footprint along with a 10% larger tread profile, our solution significantly reduces soil compaction - an essential requirement for an undamaged and healthy soil.

Watchword: surprises

Next to the crystal-clear tractor, another stunning attraction leaves visitors gaped in astonishment: Iya Traoré, and his spectacular stunts. The king of football freestyle performs well four times a day at our stand. After his amazing tricks, the golden boy is available for taking pictures and signing autographs. Not to be missed the traditional distribution of thousands of footballs marked BKT all visitors are longing for. You’ll get back home with a smile.

Tires, entertainment and fun go along with a deep sensitivity to the great farming topics of the years to come, and in particular young operators’ training and qualification. This is why we have decided to sponsor the Young Farmers Party, a program with moments of gathering and topics dedicated to young farmers and their future opportunities. Don’t miss this event on November 16! And afterwards...let’s all party together at the Young Farmers Party.

This is just a little foretaste to what you can expect at our booth. Hall 3 – Stand B11! Come and see us live!
